Max Lipmann

Max Lipmann (born 18 July 1881 Stolzenau an der Weser) made his debut as Max (Freischütz) in 1905 at the Stadttheater in Heilbronn. He was then only active as a concert and oratorio singer until 1909, when he joined the Stadttheater in Aachen. In 1911, he made his debut at La Scala in the role of David (Meistersinger). Lipmann was a member of the Boston Opera Company for the 1912/13 season, singing the roles of Nicias (Thaïs) and Lyonel (Martha) as well as comprimario roles in Tristan and in Louise. He was with the opera house of Mannheim from 1913 to 1923, and participated in the North America tour of the German Opera Company in 1923/24. After that, he focused his activity once more on the concert podium. 1934–37, he is known to have sung with the Jüdischer Kulturbund in Frankfurt; his whereabouts after that date are unknown.
